Humanitarian / Compassionate Cases

The common and most used way of coming to Canada by People from all around the world is to apply as permanent residents and receive a permanent resident visa prior to their arrival.

But there are instances that applicants that are already in Canada, and facing exceptional circumstances back in mother land may qualify for an exemption based on humanitarian and compassionate grounds.

For people in this situation, if they want to apply under “humanitarian and compassionate grounds” They must prove that their case is genuine and they are in real danger if they go back.

In these cases, Immigration Canada officers look at the length of the time spent in Canada, how they support themselves financially, how good their conduct is in Canada and if they have sufficient ties with Canada and other factors to determine granting permission to stay in Canada.
